Great Camera with surprising bonus feature for Youtubers (audio/video)

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: Hi, I see that there are 400+ reviews of this camera so I thought I'll try not to repeat the same comments. I have found a unique strength of this camera that I think is worth sharing (although admittedly it may only appeal to small subsection of users). First of all, I bought the camera initially for the birth of my daughter 18 months ago and have been astonished at it's functionality as a point and shoot camera.

Best wide angle point and shoot

Ralph D. Frantzreb II, Amazon
12 November 2008
  • Summary: I have been a loyal nikon customer for years. I have gone through 3 other nikons, always upgrading. when I first picked up this camera the quality of the product and it's images blew past that of every camera on display. 1. the wide angle lens allows you to increase those group shots from four or five to 8 or 9 w/o needing to back up ten feet. 2. once you begin to play around and figure out all of the settings/iso modes etc...

I bought two of these and they are a hit!

Manish Laxmikant, Amazon

  • Summary: Cameras typically boast 10x, 12x, 18x optical zoom and that's fine for birdwatching and the like (no don't take portraits with that unless you like flat faces) but few point-and-shoot cameras offer a 28mm-equivalent wide angle lens, with Image Stabilization to boot. Buy this with a spare lenmar NB-5L equivalent battery, and a good capacity SD card - at least 2GB, and you won't be sorry at all. The 28mm wide lens can take excellent indoor shots.

The best 28mm p&s yet.

ubercaffeinated, Amazon
2 November 2008
  • Summary: If you are looking for the best 28 mm p&s of it's class, you found it. If you are strapped for cash, you can opt for the SD800 which is similar but not the same. The SD800 is a smudge heavier, while having a smaller LCD. Image quality on the SD870 is on par with the 850, which in my humble opinion is pretty damn good. Despite the nay sayers, IQ is better than the 800.

Canon's best ELPH yet !!!

  • Summary: This camera replaced my trusty SD450. I loved the SD450, but I wanted to upgrade to something with image stabilization. To put it simply, the SD870 totally rocks! The 3" screen is beautiful to behold. It's even viewable outside with bright sunlight shining directly on it. And the pictures this thing takes are absolutely gorgeous! They are sharp as a tack, and the colors are spot on.

Excellent camera withvalue and quality

Mabbooher, Amazon
21 October 2008
  • Summary: Pros Excellent pictures and and the large LCD screen is crystal clear. load up time is significantly faster than the popular Sony cameras. It's a point and shoot, not load and wait then shoot. The cannon was fast in starting up and was able to point and shoot a picture within 2 seconds. A lot of useful features and some not so useful like the color replacements and enhancements but that might be good for the creative shooter.

Great camera for the money!

M. Shirazi, Amazon
21 October 2008
  • Summary: This is such a great camera. The 3 inch screen stands out even outside. I love the wide-angle lense which allows you to get those people to the side when taking a group picture. There are many different shooting modes made for just about any situation. I have the SD550 and this is definitely a great upgrade to it. The image stabilization works even at full optical zoom and the face detection really does make a difference. I'm more than happy with the purchase.

He Points, He Shoots, He Scores!

Chris Boylan "MrBoylan", Amazon

  • Summary: The SD870 IS is about everything you could want in a compact point and shoot digital camera. It offers excellent image quality, a large vivid LCD display, intelligent defaults, fine low-light sensitivity, a high quality movie mode (with sound), an outstanding wide-angle lens and (most importantly for me) a photo capture speed that leaves many other digital cameras in the dust.
